The Yuyangguan Town Hope Primary School is the recipient of a new solar energy system.
South Korea-based Hanwha Group and Hanwha SolarOne plan to donate a 30 kW solar PV system that provides continuous power support to the school in Wufeng County, Hubei province.
Commissioned by Hanwha Group, Hanwha SolarOne (Qidong) Company Ltd. will design and install the 30 kW distributed rooftop PV system. Hanwha SolarOne will also provide the school with comprehensive operation and maintenance training. The project, expected to be completed by November 2013, will yield an estimated 40,000 kW of solar energy to the Yuyangguan Town Hope Primary School.
Hanwha Group says it is dedicated to supporting children's education while fostering a greater understanding of sustainable development and renewable energy. Since its "Happy Sunshine" program began in 2011, Hanwha has donated PV equipment to welfare and childcare centers across Korea, Germany, and Japan.
The in-kind value of the solar panel donation was not released by the company.
